Putting on the Ritz Luncheon at the Polo Club of Boca Raton

In early January the Polo Club of Boca Raton turned into a place of glitz and elegance for a night. The cause was big enough – the Pap Corps organization was raising funds for cancer research programs at the University of Miami. Elie Tahari was not simply a honorable guest of the event, but a fashion show host.

The annual luncheon was held in a “Putting on the Ritz” theme style. This year the event set a record: first off, by a number of guests (550 members and guests) and, second, by the amount of money raised – $ 200,000.

Elie Tahari is a long-time friend of Arnold Cohen and his wife Barbara, who were honored for their generosity that evening. The Israeli-born designer said that Arnold Cohen was a mensch in the industry and they both look forward “to do good things in the world”.

Bright blue ballroom was a matching place for Elie Tahari Spring 2015 collection, which is the blend of feminine styles and earthy, weathered and natural pieces. This is what Elie Tahari said about his collection: “It’s about femininity and going back to nature”.

Lobster lunch, popular songs and energetic dances — everything added up to the atmosphere of the event.
